    I just bought a z10 off contract and Verizon is my carrier. I have read all through the posts and have a pretty good handle on how to install with the auto loader and what leak I should use. When I install the leak, will all the Verizon bloatware still be on the phone?

    The phone is not activated yet so would I be better off wiping the device completely and loading the leak new as opposed to upgrading 10.0 that is on the phone now? If I installed to a wiped device would that rid the phone of the Verizon bloatware? I don't have to back up contacts or anything since I haven't put any personal content on the phone yet.

    I have used BBSAK in the past on my legacy BB's so I was wondering if that applied to the new phones and if so what program would I use to wipe it?

    When you install with the autoloader.exe file it will be just like wiping the phone anyway. I think that bloatware comes in the form of an update when the carrier catches up to whatever OS you're using. Since you're with Verizon, you won't have to worry about that much. LOL
